With the pandemic and movement for Black lives continuing to unfold before our very eyes, our educational climate is also changing by the minute. With the proposed tax increase on the November ballot, we believe the JCPS community should use this additional time to have these necessary but difficult conversations and brainstorm solutions to meet the needs of our district’s most vulnerable students.
This strategy will not only increase community buy-in as solutions are developed, but it will increase the likelihood that new tax revenues will be spent in the best ways possible.
Whether or not you favor the tax increase (or still haven’t decided), please sign our pledge to stand with grassroots JCPS organizations as we continue to advocate for systemic change in the district on behalf of our most vulnerable populations.
A lot can happen between now and November. Let’s see where this conversation takes us.
